While business are required to carry insurance coverage, there is — unfairly — no requirement that insurers must cover claims. When faced with loss due to business interruption caused by anything from the COVID-19 pandemic to a natural disaster, businesses rightly turn to their insurance carriers to help them through. Increasingly, insurers are denying such claims.
When a claim is wrongfully denied, a wide range of businesses and organizations turn to DiCello Levitt’s Insurance Coverage attorneys for their business interruption insurance coverage needs. Our clients include educational institutions, commercial real estate companies, entertainment and hospitality industry leaders and professional sports teams — including a dozen NBA teams suing their insurers for millions in lost revenue because of the government-enforced COVID-19 shutdowns. DLG was also recently appointed as co-lead counsel on the first multi-district litigation matter resulting from COVID-19 business interruption insurance coverage, and was appointed lead counsel in three additional class action lawsuits on behalf of large companies. DLG co-founding partners Mark DiCello and Adam Levitt were named Crisis Leadership Trailblazers in late 2020 by the National Law Journal for their work holding insurance companies accountable for COVID-19-related misconduct. Having a claim denied can be frustrating and scary. When that happens, our experienced insurance law advocates stand ready, with a track record of successfully helping clients receive the coverage they deserve, to help you fight for the coverage you are entitled to.
